Publisher's Summary

En las escuelas mexicanas se incuba la mediocridad. Los actuales libros de texto gratuitos de historia deliberadamente engañan, manipulan, y ocultan la realidad de lo acontecido en nuestro país, condenando a México al estancamiento. 

¿Cómo avanzar si insistimos en inculcarle a las nuevas generaciones de mexicanos escandalosas mentiras redactadas en beneficio del gobierno en turno? ¿Por qué se atenta cínicamente contra los preceptos constitucionales de calidad y laicidad en la educación? ¿Por qué difundir una versión de la historia que favorece a la reacción, al clero y a los intereses de nuestros vecinos del norte? ¿Por qué ocultar el rostro y las actividades perniciosas de algunos de los grandes enemigos de México?  

Alejado de la ficción y apegado al rigor histórico, Francisco Martín Moreno revela en este ensayo algunas de las falsedades, embustes, y omisiones difundidas en estos libros de texto por la dolosa historia oficial, convencido de que sólo a través del conocimiento y de la educación, se puede cambiar el destino del país y escapar a tiempo de la ruta hacia la colisión.

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

Good Reading

What a Mexican should know, but it was not taught at school due to a PRI syndrome. Although, it is good to know an overall history of Mexico, let's not forget that each individual is responsible for her/his well-being. Nowadays, globalization is changing the landscape of tomorrows economy. It is a great criticism to Mexicans government that should seek the well-being of many instead of its own. Thank you!

Good, taught provoking audio for Spanish speakers willing to listen to an alternative point of view.

Overall very good book which is clearly in opposition to the government’s version of history and a lot of times the lack of. This is definitely an opinionated book, with the author establishing education as the potential saver and problem solving element to the many issues Mexico face. Yes it is very long, but not unnecessarily so.

The author asserts future Mexican generations are bound to make the same mistakes again and again, because the government was unable or purposefully do not show Mexican history as it a actually happened in school.

The author clearly points to the catholic clergy as the source of all major issues in Mexico starting from the Spanish colonization to the very present. Catholic priest and the Vatican it self are blamed for manipulating and making the Mexican government corrupt and inefficient purposefully. As the author mention, Catholic Church in Mexican history behave as a State within a State and willing to do anything simply for financial and power gains.

The author mention United States as another source further holding Mexico back, at times with the assistance of Mexican Catholic Church. The author rightfully remind the listener half of Mexico was clearly stolen by the USA and assisted by the very Mexican government via debt, unnecessary war and multiple military incursions from the US military to Mexico.

With that said the author cover a lot of Mexican history which makes a person feel both pride and embarrassment as a native Catholic Mexican. The author made a point which really stood out to me. We, as Mexicans in general, are always looking to be told what to do and how to do it.

We are very proud and hard workers, but have that complex ingrained in our culture by the Catholic Church it self, “do as you are told.” We grow up always being told we must obey, especially when it comes to anything church related. Clearly not always in our benefit and in fact mostly to the church benefit.

Needless to say I would not be surprised if a lot of Mexican people would not agree with the author opinions. There would probably be a lot of offended people unwilling to even entertain with an open mind a different point of view.

Overall good, taught provoking audio book for Spanish speakers willing to listen to an alternative point of view.

Muy detallado y muy extenso

Quizá demasiado extenso, muy interesante y detallado, pero algo tedioso, buena tarea del escritor. Engloba un período muy amplio

Malísimo

Desde mi perspectiva es una narración con muchas preguntas románticas de lo que a todos nos gustaría que fuera nuestro país pero que sabemos a la perfección que somos engañados de manera constante. La base del engaño es el control de las masas, está bien? Por supuesto que no, pero esa es la realidad de nuestro país y de muchos otros países, aún países desarrollados, sólo falta mirar a nuestro vecino del norte y sus pasadas elecciones. Es de los peores libros que leído

Ataque al catolicismo

Este libro es un vil ataque contra la iglesia católica; se dedican a atacar a la iglesia todo el tiempo, el autor solo da una crítica que si bien a veces es meramente de hechos históricos, siempre lo relaciona mucho contra la iglesia católica lo cual deja un muy mal sabor de boca. Además ... ¿Quién puede respaldar lo que él está diciendo? ¿Debemos solo creerle porque está dando una crítica?
